A Claude Blot on the landscape

Claude Blot Echo earthquakes predictionsThe Claude Blot echo is being felt and investigated more and more.

The geophysicist Claude Blot in the 1960's suggested that earthquakes transferred energy upwards from deep inside the planet instead of being produced and felt near the crusts surface.

Claude Blot was able to successfully predict future earthquakes due to what he thought of as the upward transmigration of seismic energy, that events deep in the Earth's surface in the very near past or now were signals of what was to come.

There is supposedly a book by called Volcanic Eruptions and Great Earthquakes by Claude Blot published by Queensland Press, Grover in 1998 but little record of it exists or is easy to find, or it may have been written in Le French?

In the early 1960s Claude Blot, a French Geophysicist in the South West Pacific, discovered that the migration of seismic energy in the above pattern was not one of downwards progression - as would be the case with subduction - but was an upward progression from the Mantle to the crust. He was able to compute consistent rates of upward seismic-energy progression, allowing him to make some remarkable predictions for both shallow earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The problem posed by Blot's work, to the newly-fledged mobilism, was therefore quite serious. However, this was soon overcome. Blot was transferred by the French Government to an aseismic region in West Africa and it took more than three decades before his work surfaced again, in the publication of a large book by a small Queensland Press, Grover (1998). Blot's initial forecasting has subsequently been taken up and repeatedly confirmed by, among others, the Editor of this Journal.

Claude Blots Energy Transmigration Earthquakes

Claude Blot energy transmigration deep mantle earthquakes
The idea that earthquakes are not the result of plate tectonics and collisions, stress etc is not new but certainly not accepted as standard geology theory.

Electric Universe theory implies that earthquakes are electromagnetic in nature. Wallace Thornhill has prevously suggested that earthquakes come from deep and move upwards. Upper mantle earthquakes have now been measured.

Now earthquakes are being investigated and suggested as part of a cycle or circuit involving the Sun and our planet. With many electromagnetic spectrum phenomena associated with earthquakes. Suspicious Observers and New Concepts in Global Tectonics group, Hook Echo are investigating this.

Will earthquakes and associated features be shown to be a combination of all of these. Is Claude Blots ideas about Earthquake Energy Transmigration a description of what is happening but perhaps not with or by the mechanism and forces that he suggests?

Claude Blots Energy Transmigration Law Earthquakes

Another example on a variation of Blots Energy Transmigration Law: The deep moderately strong quake: M5.7 earthquake Chile 11-10-2015 @ 17:48:22 UTC at a depth of 112.5 km, followed by the shallower, higher magnitude: M6.9 earthquake, Chile 11-11-2015 @ 01:57:37 UTC at a depth of 10.0 km. and a second M6.9 earthquake @ 02:46:19 UTC at the same location, reportedly the same depth. Picking up what I have been putting down, 0bservers? 🙂 If applied correctly, a powerful short term AND long term forecasting tool.

a team of planetary scientists from the Suspicious Observers is developing a new short-term prediction method which combines the interplanetary magnetic field and the Blot’s energy transmigration concept, a newly termed “Blot echo”.

Claude Blot forecasting earthquakes

French geophysicist by name Claude Blot. He was stationed in the south-west Pacific in the 1960s. Following the sudden eruption of Lopevi Island, after a dormant period of some 20 years Blot and other earth scientists in the region were called to a crisis meeting by the British and French Resident Commissioners. The Commissioners wanted to know why such a major disaster had not been foreseen, particularly since new seismograph stations had recently been installed in the region. Claude Blot took up the challenge and was assisted in this by the local director of the British Geological Survey, Australian John Grover.

Briefly, Blot recognised from his records that eruptions of dormant volcanoes were typically preceded by large shallow earthquakes, magnitude 6 or more. He then found that the large shallow earthquakes were typically preceded by earlier events at deeper levels, occurring on the well-defined Benioff zones. Finally, there was an identifiable geographical connection between these and the very deep earthquake zones at around 600 kilometres depth. More significantly, Blot recognised that the rate of upward migration of the earthquake events - from the very deep zones to the near surface - exhibited a remarkable consistency. On this basis, he began to predict shallow earthquakes and/or volcanic eruptions with surprising success Predictions made months or even a year or two in advance often achieved an accuracy within a few weeks, or even days.

The value of such an early warning was that islanders under threat were able to move to another island and set up new gardens to tide them over until it was safe to return to their home island.
Blot referred to his model as the upward transmigration of seismic energy. My own view is that the phenomenon might be better described as the upward migration of high temperature, high pressure volatiles emanating from the Earth's lower mantle. Irrespective of the terminology, however, the breakthrough by Claude Blot opened the way to understanding earthquake progression, and hence, prediction.

In some other branches of science Blot might have been nominated for a Nobel Prize. His reward by the French Government was a transfer to Guinea, in West Africa, where there are no volcanoes, no earthquakes. Colleague John Grover was similarly emasculated, being instructed from England to halt his earthquake research.

In the Solomons Region of the S W Pacific, the deep focus earthquakes which have been detected since 1912 have been concentrated at the north-western end of the Bougainville–New Ireland, and in a region to the south-east of the Santa Cruz Group. Recent research has established a prima facie case for a systematic time–space correlation between deep foci and sequences of shallower seismic events similar to that found in the New Hebrides by Dr. Claude Blot in the course of several years of detailed investigation of thousands of seismic and volcanic events.

Claude Blot's Ruapehu earthquakes precursors

Claude Blot had a letter published in the New Zealand Journal of Geology and Geophysics, titled Deep earthquakes that were precursors of the eruption of Ruapehu, New Zealand on 22 June 1969 (link to pdf).

Claude Blot

In my hypothesis (Blot 1976) attention is drawn to the Benioff zone of earthquakes existent beneath island arcs and active margins, and my concept asserts that correlations exist between volcanic eruptions and the prior occurrence of deep earthquakes in the Benioff zone. These deep earthquakes, tectonic in nature in that they occur because of stresses in the subducted oceanic crust, form a sequence in time of more than a year prior to the volcanic phenomena and are therefore true precursors.

It is also postulated that the greater the magnitude of the precursory deep earthquakes, the larger the subsequent eruption will be. The sequence of 9 deep earthquakes that preceded the June 1969 Ruapehu eruption by 13 to 7.5 months is shown on Table 1.

Blot Echo earthquake predictions

With the very large earthquake in Chile still fresh in our minds, it is worth recalling a similarly infamous one that hit Santiago in 1965. At the time, Claude Blot drew attention to the fact that there were four other areas of high seismic risk along the coastline of Chile and Peru. He predicted the occurrence of major shallow earthquakes for each area, timed for the end of that year, or the following year, 1966. This was documented by John Grover in the August 1965 ANZAAS Conference, and it naturally stirred up quite a bit of antagonism. But when all four areas suffered the predicted events between April and December of 1966, there was little, if any, publicity.

It now looks as though history could repeat itself. The patterns of recent earthquake activity in central Chile indicate more to come. Based on the Blot guidelines I offer the following predictions:

A major, shallow, earthquake in the second half of 2010, or slightly later, in a coastal location near Coquimbo, some 500 kilometres north of Santiago.

A major, shallow, earthquake in the immediate vicinity of Santiago, again possibly in the second half of 2010 or in 2011.

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.1 shook southern Chile on Sunday, prompting tens of thousands to flee the coast for higher ground amid fears it could generate a tsunami, like the one that ravaged the area last year.
